Lancer Releases One Piece Adaptive Magwell

Back in November I got a chance to check out Lancer’s Adaptive Magwell. Initially developed as a two-piece item, Lancer Systems created a few one-piece models to demonstrate to the US Army as a simple add-on to existing mil-spec M4/16 rifles. Now, the one-piece variant is available as a production item. Installed with a cartridge tip, it’s a great way to incorporate a flared magwell into existing mil-spec weapons without having to replace the lower receiver. I’ve tried it and with minimal practice, you can easily insert a magazine without having to bring the weapon up into your workspace to take a look at what you are doing. Sure, the Luddites will say that you can get there with a standard magwell and they are right, but the flare makes it a lot easier. The Adaptive Magwell slides onto the rifle’s existing Magwell and detent at the rear of the Adaptive Magwell fits into the front of the trigger guard to hold it fast.

Quakertown, PA – January 13, 2015 – Lancer Systems LP, a leading advanced weapons and components engineering and manufacturing company, today announced the release of the one piece Adaptive Magwell, a simple, easy-to-install component engineered to significantly reduce reload times for law enforcement officers and Soldiers. The new magwell will debut at SHOT Show 2015 in Lancer’s booth, #7503.

The component is designed to fit Mil spec 5.56 AR style rifles with winter trigger guards and requires no tools to install. The adaptive magwell is machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and weighs 0.05 lbs.

“A few seconds can make all of the difference for our military and law enforcement officers. The one piece adaptive magwell is a simple, cost effective tool that an officer or Soldier can quickly attach to his or her rifle without any tools to significantly reduce reload times,” explained Ty Weaver, director, advanced weapons & components, Lancer Systems.

Lancer is driving the weapon industry’s push for innovation through advanced technologies. The new adaptive magwell is engineered to reduce reload times, maximize reliability and exceed military standards. MSRP $99.99. Available March 2015.

    Interesting but I’m not sure that it’s worth it to me at $99. Depending on what the actual street price ends up being I might consider esp. if it comes in colors, I’m a sucker for just about anything FDE and I’m eyeing those Strike Industries selector switches simply because they come in FDE; anything to add to the black and tan theme I have going on my AR.

    Any word on if these will accept Surefire 60RD magazines? Fab Defense and Arredondo do not and I would love to find one that does.

    Too bad they’re only compatible with standard trigger guards.

    Improper use of the term “luddite.” It has nothing to do with aversion to technology, but rather a demand for increased safety protocols in response to new technology.

    The reason 19th century luddites destroyed new equipment was because of the lack of response to injuries sustained by the machines, and not because they felt threatened in some other way.
